Biography

A petite blonde actress who proved her skills with television roles that played against her angelic girl-next-door good looks, Charlotte Ross first gained fame and a following as troubled bad girl Eve Donovan, a character she essayed on NBC's popular daytime drama "Days of Our Lives" from 1987-1991. Discovered while performing in a school musical in the eighth grade, the Illinois native soon signed with an agent and began doing commercial work. She trained on stage at Chicago's Victory Gardens Theater, and made her film debut with a brief turn in 1986's "Touch and Go." The following year Ross began her run on "Days of Our Lives" as Eve, a doe-eyed, cherubic-looking teenage prostitute who descended on Salem in search of her biological parents. Even after she finds father Shane (Charles Shaughnessy), a wealthy James Bond-like international agent with a stable home life, the crafty Eve managed to find plenty of trouble for herself, and was involved in many a romantic entanglement. A subplot surrounding a nightclub offered the trained opera singer the chance to display her vocal range and a host of zany misadventures with Eve as the gleeful scoundrel kept audiences interested. Ross left the series in 1991 to pursue other work, but for years to come she would still be most recognized for her memorable turn as the unlikely looking villain.
